Trusted IT Advisors
Who We Are
We have a unique, fun, close-knit, and flexible environment that focuses on working hard and getting things done!
Professional development is really important to us which is why we've created an initiative called the L.E.A.D. Program. Through this program, we aim to provide learning opportunities for team members; a few ways in which we do this are through an internal mentorship program and regular training sessions focused on helping team members grow both professionally and personally.
When our founder and Chairman of the Board, Bill Carr, started York Solutions, one of his main goals was to create a workplace where people enjoyed coming in each day. So each day we work to ensure that we are achieving that goal and following the "rules" Bill set forth for what it takes to be successful at York:
- Come in with a good attitude
- Put in a good day's work
- Play nicely with others
These "rules" may seem simple, but they truly make all the difference in helping us maintain and grow our unique culture!
